Grass Family (Poaceae : Eragosteae)
Latin Name: Leptochola dubia
Value: Wildlife – fair
Livestock – good
The spreading, “sprangled” appearance of the seedhead gives this grass its common name. The leaves are rough on the upper surface. This grass germinates easily and is used in native grass mixtures when re-seeding overused rangeland. Provides good grazing for livestock. Adapted to rocky hills, canyons and sandy soils.
